New stretch target

We'll buy more boxes!

This year students are spending more time at home than ever before...

Due to national restrictions it is harder for them to meet up with friends and many of their usual hobbies may still be suspended. This means many are spending more of their spare time in front of a screen and even when able to meet, some are finding it difficult to take the initiative to do so.

Our solution

We would like to create and distribute activity boxes to students so they can continue to explore, experiment and create - away from screens and potentially with each other (whilst following any Government guidance live at the time). These boxes cover a range of interests and subjects to help engage students in enriching projects, all while they are having fun!  

These boxes are not directly linked to the school curriculum, but are to help the students begin to access fun again, without the pressure on families to spend more money themselves.

What we'll spend the money on 

Our target of £2665 would allow us to buy all the materials, create and distribute an activity box of choice to every student in Years 7-9 (990 boxes), plus it will cover the website transaction fees. If we surpass the target we will use any additional funds to create more boxes for more students.
